i was at the lunch buffet today, and it really is great value for $10. the margherita pizzas were very decent, even if seriously lacking in cheese. both the pea & potato soup and cream of tomato soups were very tasty.
water wasn't served so when the chinese waiter told us that it was self-service from the counter, i didn't mind, even if he said it rather brusquely. the local couple next to us, ordering a la carte off the menu, was served water (in cylindrical glasses), so i thought 'ok, buffet customers have to help themselves'.
then as i ate, i noticed that at least two tables of white patrons, also having the buffet, had cylindrical glasses of water served to them, and these glasses were topped up at regular intervals. it was obvious that these glasses had been served to them, as these were the same as those served to the Chinese couple next to my table. the self-service glasses from the counter were all big tumbler glasses.
it really doesn't help your image if you give the impression that you're happy to give better service to white patrons but not to asians who pay the same.
